Posted by FAA on 05.05.10 at 03:25 PM

This SAIB is a result of an accident on a Piper Model PA-44-180 airplane where the nose gear collapsed during landing. Post-accident investigation revealed that the nose gear drag link bolt fractured and dislodged from the drag link assembly, which resulted in gear collapse. The drag link bolt had been installed 441 hours time in service (TIS) prior to the failure.
